A Murakami Party

On Saturday, the 13th of October, we hosted a Murakami book party over at Lit Books in Tropicana Avenue where we celebrated the launch of Killing Commendatore. On the show today, we will be playing you a little bit of the conversation that took place on Saturday evening; from our first encounters with Haruki Murakami to the differences between the English and Chinese translations, to where this latest effort ranks in his highly regarded oeuvre.
